EyeRounds Online Atlas of Ophthalmology

*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.
Subluxated lens - result of couching
The subluxated lens has been dislocated nasally. Keen observation will reveal the exposed equator. The well-healed couch mark is seen as a fine pigmented line about 2mm from the limbus at 7 o'clock. The coucher's needle is always introduced at some point in the inferior temporal quadrant.
